Students & Research

From day one at the 香港六合开奖记录, you鈥檒l be learning from top researchers. Engage in seminars, courses, office hours, volunteer work, summer positions and much more.

You might apply for research opportunities like the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada鈥檚  or, in second year, the Research Opportunity Program through the  or the . You could set off to excavate fossil sites in Hungary, examine HIV/AIDS-related issues in Namibia, or develop a painkilling drug analog, without toxic solvents 鈥 and you could end up publishing your findings in peer-reviewed journals.

You can get hands-on experience through the 香港六合开奖记录 Scarborough鈥檚 , the 香港六合开奖记录 Mississauga鈥檚 , or the St. George campus Faculty of Arts and Science鈥檚  or . You might spend a week in Kosovo researching the diaspora鈥檚 impact on economic development, or observing international trade agreement negotiations in Brasilia.

Field schools are another option for students in areas such as archeology, anthropology, geology, ecology, environmental science and biology. Fourth-year ecology and evolutionary biology student Danielle de Carle studied the dung beetle in the Peruvian rainforest during a two-week Tropical Field Biology course. Since this course has students trekking into one of the world鈥檚 biodiversity hotspots, it鈥檚 no surprise they鈥檝e made a novel discovery: a jumping caterpillar.

Of course, you don鈥檛 need to travel abroad to expand your horizons. You could participate in , or local archeological digs.

You might develop your own breakthrough right here on campus, . In their fourth year as undergraduates in engineering, they took a project-based Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering course, in which students tackle real-world predicaments. After an anesthesiologist in the community described a need, the students devised a $20 3D-printed tracheal intubation tool, and won awards for its imaginative design.

This just scratches the surface. With the 香港六合开奖记录鈥檚 12,589 leading faculty members, and over a billion dollars in research funds awarded a year, we offer many different ways to get involved. Whatever your academic interests, you鈥檒l find a variety of opportunities to pursue research 鈥 both within the classroom setting, and beyond.
